COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARD

The heart of Solstice Initiative’s community-led program design is our Community Advisory Board (CAB), a collective group of paid community members and organization representatives that participate in gatherings to identify community insights and vote on decision-making for local community-led energy solutions. Our CAB offers insight and lead decisions from the earliest stages of project development.

MEET OUR COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARD

Our Community Advisory Board is leading a Community Benefits Plan to ensure our project outcomes are rooted in community leadership, ownership and opportunities to build intergenerational wealth. Learn more about the organizations participating in our Community Advisory Board below.
